This is a limited edition box set which is only available through Amazon.co.uk. The complete series 2 is boxed in a robust Cyberman Head design. The design is based exactly on the real thing & the creative concept was manufactured with the approval of Russell T. Davies. Also included is a lenticular postcard which is unique to this box set. Only a limited number have been made for Amazon so this will not be available for long. Pre-order your copy to ensure you are not disappointed.
Absolutely. The seamless casting of David Tennant as Ecclestones successor in the TARDIS has been equally inspired, and while its a fair debate as to whether he matches the standards set by his predecessor, the show rarely lets you draw breath to think about.
This second series collection kicks off with the 2005 Christmas special, which finds the Doctor struggling to overcome the effects of his regeneration, just as the Earth happens to be invaded. Its a smashing episode, and much of the thirteen that follow manage to match it. Particular highlights? Theres "School Reunion", which cleverly works old favourites K-9 and Sarah-Jane back into the mix, while "The Girl In The Fireplace" finds the Doctor in a slightly more romantic frame, "The Idiots Lantern" is a super, snappy episode set just before Coronation Day, while the two part "Impossible Planet" and "Satan Pit" shows just how far you can stretch a BBC budget.
Yet the series will ultimately be remembered for different reasons. The triumphant return for the Cybermen for one, and the depature of Billie Pipers Rose Tyler in the superb final two-parter, which also happens to see two of the Doctors deadliest foes waging war. And while its not unfair to say that this series of Doctor Who hasnt been without one or two low moments too, the vast majority of it has been really quite brilliant. Fast, energetic, well-written and cracking entertainment, youre only left wondering how they can top all this next time round --Simon Brew
